August 19, 2016
Are you the type of person who can’t sit still? Every time you go out with friends and family, do you start talking with everyone you see and meet? Do you love to read the news, books and articles of people who inspire you? If you identify with some of these statements, you’re a natural entrepreneur.
Entrepreneur in detail.
Being an entrepreneur can have different meanings to people. Some people imagine starting up their own shop. Others dream of starting a large business chain. Either way, you would be starting your own business. But in order to have that business, you need to have an idea behind it that fuels forward movement. Although having a great idea is just one part of becoming an entrepreneur, there is a misconception that an idea is all you need . When launching a business from scratch, one of the many things you need to know is who your audience is and who will be interested in what you’re selling.
An article published in Business News Daily explains it best -- "An entrepreneur is someone who can take any idea, whether it be a product and/or service, and have the skill set, will and courage to take extreme risk to do whatever it takes to turn that concept into reality and not only bring it to market, but make it a viable product and/or service that people want or need."
Characteristics of an entrepreneur.
There are a variety of different articles, like the one mentioned above, and books regarding entrepreneurship. All of them agree that there are many common traits that all entrepreneurs share. Some of these traits are:
You’re self-motivated , confident and proud of yourself.
You don't like it when people tell you what to do because you like calling the shots.
You’re very competitive and like setting deadlines for yourself.
You negotiate whatever you can, and you follow up with people when you want something.
Time management is the key skill set.
Having a great idea and executing it at the right time is crucial.
